arabluatex v1.9.2: arabluatex has been tested on hundreds of pages of fine, fully vocalized Arabic print. Among the many improvements and new features: - The rules for taḫfīf al-hamzah have been much improved. - New rules: hyphen + initial ʾalif without hamzah + hamzah and [wf]a- + hamzah have been added. - The strange spelling of miʾah has been added too. - Added support for 'uncertain' vowels (see the documentation on page 35). - As \aemph is now context sensitive, a new command \aemph* which always puts a stroke over its argument has been added.
The package's Catalogue entry can be viewed at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/arabluatex The package's files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/luatex/latex/arabluatex

arabluatex – Arab for Lua

This package provides for Lua an Arab-like interface to generate Arabic writing from an ascii transliteration. It is particularly well-suited for complex documents such as technical documents or critical editions where a lot of left-to-right commands intertwine with Arabic writing. arabluatex is able to process any Arab input notation. Its output can be set in the same modes of vocalization as Arab, or in different roman transliterations. It further allows many typographical refinements. It will eventually interact with some other packages yet to come to produce from .tex source files, in addition to printed books, TEI xml compliant critical editions and/or lexicons that can be searched, analyzed and correlated in various ways.
